I literally started writing a pregnancy update when we were at the 100 day mark and well, we’re now less than 50 days from this little gals due date and I’m finally getting around to posting it. That pregnant life though…
But it’s hittin’ me. This baby is going to be here soon. I’ve had this weird feeling since the beginning that she would come early and well so far, my mama intuition hasn’t failed me about really anything so far during pregnancy…so we’ll see! Personally, I’d be really ok with it if she decided to come (safely) early. And while half of me is in full on panic mode as the to-do lists really only seem to get longer, the other half of me is simply on cloud nine knowing that we’ll be holding our sweet Adley girl in mere weeks.
Whew, third trimester y’all. It’s no joke. I can’t bend over anymore, getting out of bed is a major chore and putting on pants or shoes is way more difficult than I’d care to admit. But, oh what a joy it is to feel this girls constant kicks and dream about what kind of little person she’ll be. Of course pregnancy has its fair share of discomforts, but what a blessing it really is.
Due Date: March 8th
Baby C is as big as a: a pineapple, holy cow! 2 weeks ago we had an ultrasound & little lady was already weighing in at almost 4 pounds….with her head firmly pressed on my bladder. (Yeah, I feel that.)
The Bump: Feelin’ large & in charge….but seriously bless the strangers that have told me how small I look. I’ll gladly accept the confidence boost.
Feeling: Overall, pretty good. My skin is definitely feeling stretched and bending over just isn’t happening anymore, but in general — I’m good! Emotionally though — I literally cry all the time. For no reason. Last night I somehow managed to be hysterically laughing while simultaneously sobbing….don’t ask, cuz I really don’t know why or how for that matter.
Craving: Pickles and cheese. Oh and now that it’s finally open in our town, all I really want is Chick-fil-A.
Food Aversions: Broccoli really still isn’t happening at the Cristy household. Third trimester nausea is no joke people & I’m most definitely feelin’ it.
Wearing: Leggings, all day every day because real pants are just not happening at this stage.
Buying: All those little essentials for baby girl that we don’t already have! We’re covered with the basics of eat, sleep, & well….diapers, just in case this little gal decided to make an early appearance. Also, stocking up on postpartum essentials and comfy clothes for those first few weeks/months at home.
Working on: Planning maternity leave, finalizing baby girls nursery & getting the hospital bag packed…just in case!
Missing: High waisted jeans, sleeping on my stomach, sleeping through an entire night.
Looking forward to: Holding our sweet baby girl so, so soon!
Sending love from up North,
